Homework

Students receive a book bag on Mondays with 2 book reports to be turned in on Thursdays.

Every day except Fridays, students receive a 1/2 sheet of math.  Students should complete a number line somewhere on their paper.

Book Bag Directions

Dear Parents:
Your child is bringing home a book bag for homework. The ziplock bag has 3 books and 2 books reports in it. The reading level is appropriate for 1st grade. If your child is already reading and these books are too simple, I will adjust the reading level as I get to know students more. Right now, the focus is on completing the book reports and them practicing reading independently aloud to you.
Directions for book bags:
1. Have your child read ALL 3 books ALOUD to you Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night. I have included a sheet with tips to support your child’s reading at home. This REALLY helps!!
2. Complete the 2 book reports on any of the 3 books (I used 1 piece of paper for both reports- you will find the 2nd report on the back) they will need help. There is a student example on the back of these directions and I modeled how to complete the book report in class. You may use pictures or words. If there is no author, simply leave it blank or cross it out.
3. Return the book bag with the 2 book reports to Mrs. Olstad on Thursday. You may keep the Xeroxed paper books, but please return the Ziplock bag. In a couple months the books will need to be returned as they are not Xeroxed copies.
Book bags and book reports will be passed out on Mondays. The book reports are due Thursday.
If you have questions, call me at 235-0422 or email me at olstad_c@aps.edu.
Thank you,
Mrs. Olstad
